Lead Teaching Fellows

The Lead Teaching Fellow (LTF) program is an interdisciplinary professional development initiative for Columbia doctoral students. LTFs receive stipends for producing teaching-related workshops in their home departments, and connecting peers to teaching resources.

Teaching Consultants

Teaching Consultants are paid an hourly rate to provide various teaching development support services for peers across the university. These include teaching observations, microteaching sessions, mid-course reviews, and individual consultations. 

Teaching Observation Fellows

Teaching Observation Fellows are Columbia University doctoral students who work closely with the Center for Teaching and Learning and with each other during the academic year to better design, implement, and assess elements of teaching.

Teaching Assessment Fellows

The Teaching Assessment Fellowship immerses graduate students in strategies for evaluating the efficacy of teaching. Participants engage in analysis of teaching projects proposed by Columbia faculty and funded by the Office of the Provost.

The CTL is here for graduate students.

The Columbia Center for Teaching and Learning provides an array of support for graduate students in both their current and future teaching responsibilities.
